• H o m e S w e e t H o m e • This last week has been utterly chaotic with packing up and moving, but I’m happy to say we’re finally all moved in to our new home, thanks to the help of some of our wonderful friends and family ♥︎ Only a few small hiccups here and there, one of them being that our couch couldn’t fit through the stairwell to the family room 🤦🏻‍♀️ But on the bright side, I get to go shopping for a new couch (I’m thinking sectional!) and Luke now has a big comfy couch in his office downstairs 🙌🏼 • I have to say though, it’s been a real eye opener seeing our life packed away neatly (or shoved in wherever there’s space) in boxes, and it has this mama seriously wondering, how on earth did we accumulate so much “stuff”?! 🤷🏻‍♀️• #homesweethome #movingishard #unpacking . . . . . . . . . . #momentsinmotherhood #myhonestmotherhood #unitedmotherhood #motherhoodthroughig #teammotherly #modernmama #mamalife #candidmotherhood #ourcandidlife #joyfulmotherhood #dailymotherhood #motherhoodinstyle #momtographer #ohheymama #tinymoments

Mattress soaked from the drive, dresser didn’t fit, nightstand fell apart, and still boxes and boxes of things all over. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I’m all (sleepy)smiles over here as I settle back into the SF rhythm 💆🏻‍♀️ #movingishard

When I was 22, I went on a road trip with one of my most amazing friends ever. I told her I had been having messed up dreams that were bothering me. They had bothered me so much in fact that I wrote them down in a journal. She asked me to read them to her. One by one I read out loud to her the horrific events happening in my dreams. After a while of reading them out loud, I finally started to see a pattern. Yes, there were really awful things happening in my dreams, yes they were all happening to me, but at the end of each dream, I ended up being ok in the dream. I started to break down after I read the last dream. I felt like the universe was trying to tell me, “Annie, you’re going to be ok.” That year had been really difficult for me. I hadn’t felt ok for a long time. I felt messed up and broken from things that had actually happened to me. As a result, I felt like I was unraveling and falling apart, like I wasn’t going to be ok, like I was in over my head. Fast forward 15 years and I again feel like I’m in over my head. This time nothing bad is happening. It’s just that I don’t know what’s happening. What the hell was I thinking moving to a place with not even a handful of friends? What the hell was I thinking doing this at the age of 37? I should have done this when I was younger. Why does it take me so fucking long to figure shit out that other people figured out years ago? I’ve always been a late bloomer. It’s always taken me a little longer. I have no idea what I’m doing. But I do know that I’ll probably be ok. That’s the good news. Things usually have a way of working itself out. #roadtrips #pulpitrock #reflections #mountainchicks #girlswhohike #coloradothoughts #tellyourstory #midlifecrisis #movingishard #youregretwhatyoudidntdo Thank you for all the fun memories and life changing road trip @joanna_lauren
